priorities (Sunday October 14th, 2007 - 00:31)

category: mmhuh?

I had a chuckle at a headline and story blurb on the Sydney Morning Herald site:

Beer prices rise as drought continues
The price of beer and other Australian staples are set to rise in NSW due to prolonged drought.

So does that mean that beer is the number one staple for people in New South Wales? The article itself continues in a similar vein focusing on beer and making only passing comment to food shortages.

“We anticipate there could be prices increasing in the order of 10 to 20 cents a schooner due to the shortage of barley,” he said.

Mr Macdonald said the barley shortage was unlikely to affect the taste of beer.

Well I’m glad to know that but.. err.. how much extra will my bread cost?

PS Just remember, this is the country that once had a Prime Minister as its National Yard Glass drinking champion!

When you’ve got beer, who cares about food?

(Except donuts, of course)
